I copied my raw images from my SD card and placed them into a new folder on my desktop...then I clicked "import" in LR...when I clicked the folder from my desktop that I wanted to import...It said "no photos found". I have never seen this before and this is how I ALWAYS handle my photos. Whats going on?
Sorry that you cannot import images from a folder containing your images on your desktop.
Which version of Lightroom are you using? What extension are the raw files? Are you able to import from any other location directly(like from the SD card)
